This is possibly one of the more interesting food products—snacks—I have ever come across. Anyone familiar with gummy bears already know this isn't anything new, but take another glance because it's different. Yes, the company known for producing and selling orange juices, even in alumimum cans, tries its shot at making gummy snacks. What's next, a made-for-TV movie? Okay, that'll be a little weird—Sunny D Productions/Films.
You'd think these are just another batch of gummies from a different brand. In fact, I find these to be much more soft and tender, making it easy to eat and chew. And no, they didn't lie: there is some liquid in the middle of the pieces that'll guarantee to make your mouth water; It's tangy and not too sweet. The shapes of the pieces are Sunny D orange juice gallons. Hey, don't yell at me, I didn't make these. I think they agreed to choose Sunny D's famous orange juice gallons as their pieces since that's initially what many people think when they hear the brand. It's a bizarre choice but it's totally fine. What about the logo "Sunny D" as gummy pieces? I don't mind that either, as long as it tastes good, which this does.
I realized something as I ate these prior to writing this review: This is the perfect snack to give to someone who's having a bad day and/or feeling bitter and angry. Let's face it: Recently, people have been very angry and frustrated (go watch the evening news on TV, or click the "NEWS" section of any newspaper website online). The best method to cheer them up? Give them a bag of Sunny D gummies. (If you're a writer/producer for TV commercials, feel free to steal that idea from me. You're welcome—don't get up, please.) That may not sound like something that's meme worthy, so we're sure this will truly cool off those angst-filled people.
Overall, I definitely recommend these snacks. Granted, I feel these may be featured at the checkout counters to entice last-minute shoppers for a quick snack, but nevertheless, it's a snack worth getting. Know someone who's feeling angry because their NCAA Tournament Bracket was busted? Tell them to chill out, sit down and have some Sunny D gummies.
I'm sure it'll work.
